Stephen colletti dating hayden
It didn't take very long for producers to make her the Betty to Cavallari's Veronica."The fact that I didn't take life too seriously and was a bit of a party animal didn't often put me in a good light," Cavallari says of being painted as the show's resident bad girl. But during editing, the producers made it seem like he was saying a lot of that to the other girl he was 'seeing' and that I was rolling my eyes at him, which wasn't the case," she writes, referring to Conrad. Producers also had Stephen go up to this same girl's house to hang out, which they made me believe was all on his own, so the joke was on me."On a trip to Cabo San Lucas, when Stephen and I were actually broken up, I jumped up on the bar to dance with my girlfriends. Later I would out they told him to go."Though Cavallari and Colletti remained a couple on- and off-screen, being put in made-for-TV situations put a strain on their relationship.
At the time, Cavallari writes that Colletti was her "entire" world. My relationship with Stephen went from our own high school romance to the fodder of a hugely successful television show.""Normal high school relationships are dramatic enough, but ours now had the added pressure of being seen by MTV viewers across the country as well as being manipulated by the show's producers, a set of adults were very suddenly involved in the intricacies of our lives," writes Cavallari, now a married mother of three.
Then I kissed a guy I was seeing at the time, completely unaware of how my actions were affecting Stephen (only teenagers are able to be so self-involved! "What Stephen and I had together was real, and that's what made me get through the producers' attempt at manipulating us.
"Surprisingly, the producers had a bigger effect, as they controlled and mapped our lives more than we were aware.
One of the most hurtful things they did was pressure Stephen to spend time with another girl from the show, Lauren, while he and I were dating.
Even then, I knew that couldn't be good for a relationship," Cavallari, 29, recalls. There are certainly some clips I wish I could erase from everyone's memory."It wasn't until the episode aired in October 2004 that Cavallari realized she had no control over her image.
"One time in particular, they showed me adamantly telling him, 'I don't want to talk about it'—meaning, I didn't want to talk about whatever it was , but it sounded as though I didn't want to deal with the issue at all."Conrad narrated Season 1, inherently making her the most sympathetic character. "During that same trip to Cabo, I had to go to dinner with the cast—whom I normally wouldn't go to dinner with—and Stephen was mouthing 'I love you' and being incredibly sweet to me even though we were broken up.
